A Lynx to 



the Past... 

The Lynx 1998-99 
Lincoln College 
300 Keokuk 
Lincoln, IL 62526 





Well they thought that they could get rid 
of me... I am back for my third year as Advisor/ 
Editor, and am loving every minute of it. Our 
staff is branching out and trying our hand at a 
new production method and working with a new 
photographer, and we are very excited about all 
of our work. 

This year the Lynx yearbook staff decided 
to spice up the book and make it a real history 
marker for Lincoln College. So our 1998-99 
book, A Lynx To The Past, is sure to keep us on 



our toes and bring you some bits 
of history about the place we all 
call home. We hope your journey 
through this book is a glad re- 
minder of the carefree days that 
you have spent at L.C. We have 
tried to catch a little bit of every- 
thing that happened this year, so 
it can be used as your memory 
book or your Lynx to the Past... 

Thanks for sharing your 
year with us. 




o 



Our First Les 





The Campus... What came first 
here at L.C.? This is an often 
asked question by many Lincoln 
College students, faculty, and 
staff. As we can probably figur^ 
out University Hall was the first 
building on campus. 1 866 to 
exact, it has withstood the t 
of time through fires and trage^ 
Some have claimed to see gho 
in it, but who knows. Kind or a 
creepy old building, isn't it??? 
But it is the foundation of the 
place that we call home. 





»on In History 





THE LIBRARY?!?!?! Probably not, but that 
is at least what our parents like to hear. Most 
people spend time hanging out with friends in 
the dorms, or playing pool in the student cen- 
ter. But the favorite place for L.C. students is 
in the computer lab checking their E-mail. 
What would we do without E-mail ! ! !

From dances to fine 
dining experiences, the 
Meyer-Evans Student 
Center provides us 
with it all. 




[) In History... 

Meyer-Evans Student Center 




From our meals to our games, we 
spend countless hours in this building. But 
L.C. Students didn't always have it so nice. 
Before the student center was built in 1 989, 
Spatz Hall had been the student center. So 
the new building was a nice change and a 
beautiful addition to the campus. 

Spatz Hall was built under President 
Raymond Dooley. ''When Dooley came 
in 1948 there were only three buildings 
on the Lincoln College Cam- 
pus. He spent money on 
bricks and mortar and made 
it possible for the college to 
accommodate larger numbers 
of students." Dr. JackNutt. 

Dr. Nutt has followed in 
the footsteps of his 
predescessor Mr. Dooley by 
increasing the number of build- 
ings on campus and making 
room for the growing popula- 
tion of Lincoln College stu- 
dents. Within in the past ten 
years a new student center, a 
new classroom building, an ad- 
dition to the Johnston Center, 
two new dorms, and a new 
admissions building have been 
built. I bet you didn't realize 
how much L.C. has grown in 
such a short time. I wonder 
what will come next?

Over the years since Lincoln Col- 
lege opened, dorm life has 
changed dramatically. In 1912 
room and board cost around 
$144 for the entire year. Today 
we pay a lot more than that, but 
it is worth it for all the fun times 
that take place in the dorms. 
The first dorm on the L.C. cam- 
pus was a house for female stu- 
dents and faculty to live in. It 
was called Harts Hall and do- 
nated to the college in 1937. 
Some L.C. students lived in army barracks on cam- 
pus and still many commuted. In 1957 Olin-Sang Hall was added as 
the first modern dorm. In 1960 Forsyth Hall was added and in 1963 
the Carrols were added. The newest addi- 
tions to the Lincoln College campus are 
the Heritge Halls buih in 1997 and 1998. 
These are the rooms that we call home.

Parents Weekend 1998 
Paying for our 
History Lessons... 



J 




Parents coming to visit?!?! That can be a 
scary thought. So many things to do with the 
family coming to visit. First clean the room, get 
rid of anything questionable, put all the clothes 
away, shave, aM iron the outfit that you will wear 
when mom is around. The list keeps going and 
going. 

So they visit, they meet your teachers, 
take you to dinner, buy you a few things at Wal-mart, and give you 
pizza money. Now was that sooo bad. Good thing this is only a once a year event. 

This years Parents weekend was a huge success. There 
was a great turn out and parents enjoyed meeting with 
the teachers and administration. Parents and students 
alike also enjoyed seeing the play The Man Who Came 
To Dinner. 

All of our parents left pretty happy with how things 
were going and probably a little bit broke too. Parents 
Weekend is a tradition that has been going on since 
1 93 1 . That year L.C. put on two plays and the Lynx 
Basketball team beat Hannibal-LaOrange College to 
put a fmishing touch on parents weekend. 
Parents Weekend - A great tradition.

Past, Present, and Future.. 



Since its small be- 
ginnings in 1865, Lincoln 
College has grown into an 
institution where the goal is 
to prepare students for a 
four-year university. Indi- 
vidualized attention is one 
of the methods used to 
achieve that goal. "One 
thing that is nice about Lin- 
coln College is that you are Administration Building - 1948 

not a number, you are a person!!!" Tim Dowling. 

Through the years L.C. has seen many changes. 22 men have held the 
title of President of the college since 1865. The three men who have kept this 
place striving and ever growning are David H. Harts, Chairman of the Board of 
Trustrees, 1926-1962, Raymond Dooley, President, 1948-1971, and Dr. Jack 

Nutt, President, 1982 to 
the present. These men 
were and are dedicated to 
the success of this insti- 
tution. 

In the beginning 
years, Lincoln College, 
first charted Lincoln Uni- 
versity, followed tradi- 
M I tiori^l education practices 
of the times and centered 
itself around church re- 
lated schooling. In the 
first commencement cer- 
emony held in 1 868, four 
students graduated. Last year almost 1 80 students graduated.

We have seen many trends and people come and 
go through the years, but the foundation and mission of 
Lincohi College has always stayed the same. What is 

different now from back then? Ahnost everything but 
^^•^ our goals. What does the future hold? Who can say. It 

issuretobealongandinterestingjoumey, andonethat 
we all have been a part of Be proud of the history and 
heritage that L.C. has brought about since 1865 and 
don't hesitate to learn more about 
the place we call home. To learn 
more about the history of Lincoln 
College check out the book The 
Lincoln College Story 1865-1995 
by Barbara Hughett. I am sure 
that in another 100 years that our stories will be the 
ones that make up the Lynx of the chains.

Under the direction of 
Mrs. Paula Knopp, this 
group has been working 
together to get the mes- 
sage out about awareness 
of the world around you 
and keeping safe. This 
year they went to the 
C.A.T.S. convention in 
Springfield and had a 
great time working with 
other campus saftey and 
wellness programs from 
around the state.

The Lynx 




Wow, how we have changed over the years. 
[Going from the old quad pac to totally computer 
generated books is the biggest change in the past 
few years alone. What are some of the other 
changes that have been made??? We were once 
known as The Emancipator and are now the 
LYNX. We have seen many editors and many 
advisors through the years as well. Here are a 
few of the covers from the 90's. They don't even 
I resemble the yearbooks of the past. We are al- 
ways trying to make things look better and be 
more of a memory book for you. The addition of 
color to the Sophomore pages and better quality 
from the Taylor Publishing Company are just a 
few added kicks we have. It is a job in itself to get this book on its feet, but also a lot of fiin and laughs are 
put into this book while looking back at the past year and beyond. So we hope that you get as much ftm out 
of this as we have. Although you will probably just look at the pictures right now, this book will still be 
around in 5 years and also 50 years. So look closely and remember the times shared here at L.C.

The Lincoln College Chorale has 
been around for a long time, but was it 
always just the chorale??? Well after a 
little bit of investigating, the Lynx staff 
found out that there used to not be 
enough people on campus interested in 
singing, so the choir had to recruit fi"om 
the town and surrounding towns to get 
interested people. They were then 
called the A Cappella Choir. It was one 
of the top performing groups in the area. In the 1930's the group toured Central 
Illinois singing in many of the towns in the area. Who would have known that it 
would have went from this (the picture below on the right) to what it has grown into 
now. 

Under the direction 
of Bill Buffington, the cho- 
rale performs at all three of 
the concerts each year. 
They sing a variety of mu- 
sic and have a lot of fun 
doing it. Anyone can join 
the chorale and this year 
there were about 45 sing- 
ers in the group. Congrats 
on a great year and keep on 
singing.

Walker, Eric Peal, Aaron 
Wolfinsohn, Shehzad Mer- 
chant, Jon Mathis, Chad

Under the direction of Mrs. Linda 
Buffington, the Lincoln Harmony and the 
Sophistikatz performed at all three ma- 
jor concerts on campus this 
year. They had a great time 
and did a wonderful job with 
their shows this year. 
Congrats on all their success.

Since the beginning, Lincoln College has always had a 
Strong dramatics program. Throughout the years, we have 
put on hundreds 
of plays and mu- 
sicals. Below is a

The Lynx Soccer Team: Row 1 : Mitch CotthoflF, Matt Woodrow, Bill Nyhanna, Ruben Vazquez, Chris 
Snow, Adrian Alvarez, James Chambers, Steve Power, Keith Gibson, Fabian Calderon. Row 2: Coach 
Mark Howard, Aaron Snafer, Eric Simmons, Tim Lavin, Lamont Sneed, Ben Lawler, Lee Jackson, Mike 
Jacklin, Tyrone Lord, Josh Wheal, Darko Gligorevic, Matt Hawkins, Troy Greenquist, Coach Aaron Paskvan. 

The 1998 Lynx Soccer Team began the year with 
a flurry by winning the 7th annual Kelme Classic. In the 
championship game we defeated College of Lake County 
in penalty kicks! This was our 4th championship in 7 years. 

After 5 games we were 5-0 and ranked 1 8th in the 
nation. The Lynx then hit a skid, due in some part to inju- 
ries. Our leading scorer at the time Tim Lavin, who had 3 
goals and 7 assists in just 5 games, injured his ankle and 
struggled to regain his form. Our second leadmg scorer 
Giovanni Sausedo, who had 5 goals and 2 assists in 5 games, 
reinjured his knee and had to have orthoscopic surgery. In 
addition, in our game against Belleville, our starting goal- 
keeper broke his leg! The offense struggled to score and 
we won only 2 of the next 9 games. The team played well 
in many of those games but they just couldn't fmd the net; 
5 of those 9 opponents were recognized in the national polls. 

Ironically, the Lynx luck started to change in the 
loss to Springfield College of Illinois. In the last 3 regular 
season games, we scored 12 goals and won 2 out of 3 games. 
However in our last regular season game, our stopper Bill 
Nyhanna, suffered a concussion and missed all of our piay- 
ofiF games. We began our playoffs by beating Lewis and 
Clark 1-0, and advanced to the Region 24 semi-final game 
against Belleville Area C.C.. However, BAC had the better 
of the days and won 2-0. 

Looking forward to the ftiture, the Lynx started 7- 
8 fi-eshmen every game! There will be some key holes to 
fill fi-om the sophomore starters, however, with another 
excellent recruiting year we are confident we will be back 
in the national polls where we belong.

History In The Making 



So many things are dif- 
ferent now, but are they dif- 
ferent to us? 

No! Most people think 
that Lincohi College has been 
the same way forever. Every- 
one thinks that all the teacher 
have been here since the dawn 
of mankind, but they havn't. 
So what are some of the little 
things that only the learned 
student would know about the 
college? Let's fmd out. 

First of all we must say 
that if we don't provide 
enough information, you 
should check out the book the 
Lincoln College Story 1865- 
1995 by Barbara Hughett. It 
is jammed packed full of the 
entire history of the college 
and how things were started. 
It was a huge help in working 
on this entire yearbook. 

Most people don't 
know, but Spatz Hall, where 
the computer labs are, used to 
be the student center. Can you 
imagine playing pool and ping 
pong in there? 

The college was started 
in 1865. Everyone knows 



that, but who started it? The 
Cumberland Presbyterian 
Church appointed a five mem- 
ber commission to fmd a suit- 
able place to put a college in 
the Midwest. Several promi- 
nent citizens of Lincoln 
guided the church to look at 
Lincohi. The citizens gath- 
ered $27,000 dollars and pre- 
sented it to the church group. 
The next day was gloomy and 
damp. The group visited the 
site where University hall is 
now located and when they 
got there the sun broke 
through the clouds and lit up 
the area with an unusual glow. 
One of the members said it 
must be a sign from God and 
so the rest is history as they 
say. 

The college has had 22 
presidents since it opened in 
1865. 

These and many more 
facts about the place we call 
home can be found in Barbara 
Hughett's book. Who would 
have know???

This artice was a main feature in the 1928 
yearbook the Emancipator: 

Both the scholastic and athletic standards of Lincoln College rank high. At 
no small college is the standard of classroom work higher, here the instructors are 
able to give each student a more personal attention because they have only a limited 
number of classes with which to work. 

Lincoln is a member of the Illinois Intercollegiate Athletic Association, better 
known as the Little Nineteen, and has regularly organized teams in football, basket- 
ball, track, and tennis. Lincoln 's basketball team ranked second in the conference in 
1926, 1925 and third in 1924. Athletic activity is not limited to intercollegiate com- 
petition by the varsity teams, as an elaborate intramural sport program is carried out 
each year 

A fine Christian atmosphere pervades the campus. It manifests itself in the 
classroom, on the athletic field, and in student life. Almost every student attends 
chapel service, although attendance is not compulsory. The student body is free from 
politics and harmful cliques, and the spirit is delightfully democratic. At Lincoln, the 
students of limited or average means finds himself in a place with those more fortu- 
nate. 

Among the attractive features of student life at Lincoln are the splendid orga- 
nizations, the Philomathean and Amasagacian Societies, literary groups open to both 
sexes, wich hold regular meetings with programs that are really interesting and worth- 
while. The Railsplitter Club is an organization to which all winners of the varsity "L " 
in athletics belong. The Spotlight Club is composed of students in Dramatic Art and 
Public Speaking. Students whose scholastic standing is high are members of the 
Honor L Society. The Young Men s and Young Women 's Christian Associations, which 
are affiliated with state and national organizations, are active in Lincoln. 

At Lincoln, you will find rare opportunities for the development of any talent 
you might possess, whether it be athletic, musical, forensic, artistic, or literary, as 
expert instruction is given in all of these lines. 



Most things never change, although the organizations are not the same, 
the spirit of the Lynx is still alive.

LicctHQ Uaiversity, 



Well as we draw things to a close on this end, 
we would like to leave you with a little advice... First 
of all, the more things change, the more they stay the 
same. I don't know who said it, but as you can see we 
are still pretty much the same school that we started out 
to be. Although the administration is different and the 
teachers different and the campus is so much bigger, we 
are still the same old Lincoln College. Look forward to 
any changes that may come in the future. We are still 
growing and expanding our horizions. So many good 
days ahead and so many things still left to do. 

I have enjoyed this year more than any of my 
years working with the Lynx yearbook. I am able to sit 
back as an outsider and look at all the crazy things that 
goonatL.C. I do miss being a part of the school, but 
I still have this part of it to look forward to. 

I need to send out a few thank-you notes as well... A special thanks to Dean Zurkammer 
and his staff (Joyce Geary, Lisa Akers,and Puff Daddy Pat Burke). I would also like to thank all of 
the coaches and sponsors who worked with me to get their teams info into the book. And finally to 
B & L Photography for all of their help with pictures and getting things to me for deadlines. 

Well I guess that wraps up this chapter in the history of Lincoln College. We hope that you 
go on to make great history 
with everything that you do in 
life. 

We're History!!!
